Korean Street Toast (Gilgeori) – Recipe


…also known as gilgeori toast.

I watched many Korean films years ago and I heard this name mentioned a few time, so I decided to check it out and make it and yeah it was really nice.

I decided to make this again and it was just as nice and filling as I remembered.

Yields : 1

Ingredients 

  • ⅓ cup shredded carrot
  • 1 cup thinly shredded green cabbage
  • 1 spring onion (thinly sliced)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 thick slices white bread
  • 2/3 teaspoon white sugar
  • 2 thin slices smoked ham
  • 1 slice mild Cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise

Content Prep

  • Combine carrot, cabbage, spring onion, black pepper, cayenne, and salt. 
  • Mix with your hands for about 20-30 seconds until soft and seasoned. 
  • Add eggs and mix thoroughly with a fork
  • Set aside.

Bread Prep

  • Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. 
  • Add bread slices and toss to make sure both sides are well buttered. 
  • Grill bread until both sides are beautifully toasted and golden brown and starting to get a little crispy. 
  • Remove to a plate.

Step 3

  • Heat remaining butter in the same skillet over medium heat. 
  • Add cabbage mixture; cook and simultaneously mix by using the edge of a spatula to chop down on the surface while pushing the edges up and over the top.
  • As the mixture starts to hold its shape, form into a rectangle that’s same length as two slices of bread
  • Split the rectangle in half and continue to cook until golden brown; flip and continue on the opposite side, 3 to 4 minutes total.
  • Stack cabbage pieces on top of one another and transfer to toast. 
  • Top with sugar.


Step 4

  • Add the two slices of ham to the same skillet over medium heat; cook until sizzling. 
  • Flip and top ham with Cheddar cheese.
